Storyline

Two female tourists in Hollywood take a personally guided tour. They are hoping to see many movie stars and they aren't disappointed. Their first spotting is of Reginald Denny testing out his model airplanes. Then on the girls' direction, the tour guide follows a car driven by 'Clark Gable', who, at his final destination, they spy whitewashing his barn. They then stop by the Bel-Air Stables owned by Robert Young and Allan Jones, who are both there with Jones' wife, Irene Hervey, discussing what to name their new foal. Their final stop is to the baseball diamond where a cavalcade of movies stars are playing in a charity game, with the comedians playing against the leading men. The girls end up sitting closer to their two celebrity crushes, James Stewart and George Murphy, than they realize. Written by Huggo

Playing ball for the studio

In an amusing short subject that ends with an all star baseball game, two star struck young women, Sally Payne and Joyce Compton decide to take Billy Benedict's private Hollywood tour in the back seat of his convertible. They get to see Reginald Denny trying to fly his model airplane, follow Clark Gable and watch him give his barn a coat of whitewash. After that it's off to the races where presumably at Hollywood Park they see stable partners Robert Young and Allan Jones give a new colt a name. The real life partner of Allan Jones, Irene Hervey was also present at the birth.

After that it's Hollywood's Wrigley Field where a bunch of stars are playing a charity baseball game. For MGM contract players this was box office duty. But such non-MGM players like James Cagney, Tyrone Power, and Dick Powell were there. What was the trade off that Louis B. Mayer had to give for these walk-ons?

It's an amusing film, a must for stargazers.
